Seven Ways to Screw Children Delicately - The Pennsylvania Catholic Priest's Guide to Kiddie Rape

Pennsylvania grand jury spelled out 7 practices dioceses used to hide the truth about predator clergy

The statewide grand jury that determined hundreds of priests in five Pennsylvania Catholic diocese molested some 1,000 children over the decades described a typical pattern followed by church leaders when they were confronted with abuse allegations:
  • Use euphemisms to describe sexual assaults in diocese documents. Never say “rape”; say “inappropriate conduct” or "boundary issues.”
  • Don’t conduct investigations with properly trained personnel. Instead, assign fellow clergy members to ask inadequate questions and make credibility determinations about the colleagues with whom they live and work.
  • Send priests for “evaluation” at church-run psychiatric treatment centers. Allow these experts to diagnose whether the priest was a pedophile, based largely on the priest’s self-reports and regardless of whether the priest had actually engaged in sexual conduct with a child.
  • When a priest is removed, don’t say why. Tell parishioners that he is on sick leave or suffering from nervous exhaustion. Or say nothing at all.
  • Even if a priest is raping children, provide him housing and living expenses, although he may be using these resources to facilitate more sexual assaults.
  • If a predator’s conduct becomes known to the community, don’t remove him from the priesthood. Instead, transfer him to a new location where no one will know he is a child abuser.
  • Don’t tell the police.Child sexual abuse, even short of actual penetration, is and has for all relevant times been a crime. But don’t treat it that way; handle it as a personnel matter, “in house.”

American CEO Failure Management 101 - or - Pennsylvania Grand Jury Kiddie Abuse Dump - 2018

 RC Pennsylvania Bishop's CEO Mission Statement (dedacted)

Last week a news dump from Harrisburg Diocese and the rest now to cover all eight dioceses more or less in the past few years of gross mismanagement from bishops and ruling archbishops who not only lack compassion not only for children but for people in general I would imagine. What kind of two faced local church CEO gets away with ignoring the cries and hurt of the least of us, the defenseless among us. etc. Well American Business CEOs can get away with taking away benefits, stripping jobs and trashing treasuries (pension funds) without legal or social consequences and still get bigger and bigger bonuses for protecting the shareholders at home and or Rome?

The revised John Jay Report on Systemic Abuse of Children of 2011 suggested that priests ordained in the 1940s and 1950s lacked social skills and could not on a micro level deal with the social revolutions of the 1960s with it social explosions of sex (birth control), drugs and rock and roll.

That the explosion of demand of the upcoming Boomer Generation being banged out by returning GIs and their mates was a demand on in two cases, a visionary building plan for more schools and seminarians / convents to fill the traditional cheap Medieval slave labor based on the wonderfully corrupt concept of celibacy, one of sacrifice at the vocations crowd at street level and more gold cups, champagne, limousines and caviar at the management level of all this. And who but dinosaurs like Spellman and Dougherty and Cushing of the old school of kiss the pope's toe and then go home and do whatever the fuck you want to or what sticks to the wall that you throw on it and it sticks like in cooking pasta? A new sacred tradition?

With massive building programs to teach the next expanded generation of Catholic boys and girls, like the confusion on any building sites, personnel always coming and going and any collateral damage to the building sites and or children is to be expected?

And if you were too focused early in your career in getting elected pope like John Krol of Philadelphia, you might in order to secure your domestic legacy be trying to patch up the mess in personnel that happened during your salad days as archbishop. 

Bishop Joseph McFadden

On May 16, 1981, McFadden was ordained a priest by Cardinal John Krol at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul.[7] His first assignment was as a parochial vicar at St. Laurence Church[8] in Highland Park, where he remained for one year.[3] From 1982 to 1993, he served as administrative secretary to Cardinal Krol.[3] He was named an Honorary Prelate of His Holiness on May 29, 1991.[2]

So using a timeline thingy, Monsignor McFadden was personal secretary to Cardinal Krol both as an active archbishop and into the first five years of his retirement. 

And we all know that Krol did not move out of the Cardinal's suite of rooms in the main, 1880s portion of the Cardinal's residence. The new archbishop Bevilacqua (between the lines - a name not mentioned once in McFadden's Wikipedia bio btw) had to do with carving out a new archbishop's suite with the remaining 30-40 rooms of the Great Gatsby1920s addition to that mansion. (Bought at a bankruptcy fire sale btw in 1935 for 350k by Cardinal Dougherty, that's less than 5k a room and ten acres too. This all in the Depression and after Dennis's trip to Rome and the Pope's blessing on his Fatwa against the Hollywood controlling Jews with a Catholic boycott in the AD of Philly against all cinemas. Gave the Vatican prestige and further leverage in delicate political negotiations between holy mother church and the new German regime. Wink. Nod.)

I can only imagine that half the priest personnel files of the archdiocese in Philly were scattered around the Krol end of the mansion and not available to Bevilacqua and his crowd even if he was willing to reform the priesthood and weed out the buggerers. etc.

Bevilacqua:  "I want you to tell your boss that he has to move out. It is not traditional to stay in the Bishop's palace once one has retired." 

McFadden: "His Eminence wishes to remind your Excellency that if you do not like the present living arrangements, please refer it to his Holiness in Rome. A pope who owes so much to his Eminence's good will in the second papal conclave of 1978..."

That the dysfunction at the Archbishop's mansion in Philly was no doubt a microcosm on the Vatican fantasy land of the waning days of the long reigning and ailing John Paul II and his gatekeeper, the future Benedict XVI. And reflective of a lot too no doubt little niche turfs in all the little duchy dioceses in PA.

So Cardinal Wuerl's hemming and hawing in charge in Trumpland DC can say he cared about all the little people in Pittsburgh on his way to the top to the CEO perks of Archbishop of Washington DC, a bit of a yawn here. 

Yawn (again)

Forever Amber - a Film Banned in Philly by Cardinal Dennis Dougherty

Wikipedia Commons - Public Domain USA (copyright not renewed) 

Trying to find his pastoral letter, its exact wording, around June 1934 having Catholics in the AD of Philadelphia boycotting all cinema to make it more decent by the absence of Catholics therein, I ran into old Denny's tirade against Forever Amber being banned at the FOX theater downtown. I can't find proof of his ever rescinding his 1934 fatwa. So why the shout out again in 1947 to the faithful?

No mention of the 1934 Fatwa against the ethnic types in Hollywood in his seemingly incomplete Wikipedia biography. 

I researched and there is no anti-Semitic angle that might have stirred his little pee-pee, so I guess the theme of the novel and movie Forever Amber of a woman not knowing her place in the world and sleeping her way to the top of Charles II royal court is a disturbing fact to challenge his worldview of boys only having that right of sleeping their way to the top (of the Vatican's hierarchy) I would imagine. 

Where's a good old fashioned Republican cloth coated "Religious Liberty Task Force" when you need one? LOL

Cleaning Out The Stables - One Diocese At A Time

Defaced Image of Pharaoh Hatchetsut - Karnak

Seeing the recent press release at the beginning of August, press dump from the swamp, the Diocese of Harrisburg of all the constipated backed up hidden shit, clergy abuse of kids, for decades in the all male clergy's club I have to wonder at the recent decision of Bishop Gainer of Harrisburg to purge the names from all buildings and hospital wings and glory holes of the names of the hierarchy that did little or nothing to prevent the abuse of children. And I know that Bishop McFadden was not in Harrisburg long enough to do anything good, bad or indifferent to change anything in that diocese after fucking up so gloriously in the his efforts to cover up clergy abuse in Philly.

Whitewashing over the names of various Hatshepsut like RC bishops lends itself to the saying of Edmund Burke "Those who don't know history are doomed to repeat it."


The road to paradise is lined with the skulls, bones and broken wasted lives of the innocent. 

My friend Dave says that the Allentown Diocese Abuse News Dump happens next week or so. He is not Catholic but lives in that territory and is deeply saddened by the state of the RC church end of X-tianity.

As noted before Bishop John Barres has no doubt finished his work in Allentown and probably after Harrisburg as well and has moved onto to Bishop of Rockville Centre on Long Island to clean up the mess of Bishop William "Mansion" Murphy, fan and student of the late Cardinal Law.

Rockville Center by the way is the diocese of two the the four counties on Long Island, counties of Nassau and Suffolk, and excluding Queens and Kings (Brooklyn) counties.

Reading through the carefully manicured Wikipedia bio of Bishop McFadden I am struck of what I do not see and can from memory possibly read between the lines.

Bishop Joseph McFadden

McFadden then attended St. Joseph's University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in politics in 1969.[3] He played on the freshmen basketball team at St. Joseph's, and also coached at St. Thomas More High School and West Catholic Boys High School.[2]Following his graduation from St. Joseph's, he joined the faculty of West Catholic Boys High School, where he taught social studies.[6] In addition to his teaching duties, he coached the junior varsity basketball team and served as the school's athletic director.[6]

In 1976, McFadden decided to study for the priesthood, a vocation he had considered "through high school and when [he] went to college."[3] 

One - It was St. Joseph's College (Jesuits) when he graduated from it.

Two - Crunching the numbers, his parish was in Overbrook with the Seminary, he could have avoided peers from high school who did the seminary thing in eight years, peers from senior and junior year in high school by going through at a later date. Just saying. 

Three - was he asked to leave as Athletic Director at West Catholic? Vetting on resumes such a loose thing back then and of course we are talking Christian Brothers at West Catholic. "Mums the word Joe. Now hit the road"?

I say the three item because I remember an incident from my senior year in high school. Of the brother High School being taught by the same teaching order at my High School.

I say the three item because I cannot after much research and or "search" under many different tags cannot find the story of the basketball coach at the other high school inviting the team over at the end of the season for a party and sleep over at the coach's house and distributing beer no doubt to the boys and "yawn" sleeping arrangements having the star player of basketball team sharing coach's double bed. 

And the star player running out of the house after being awoken by a groping naked coach and going home reporting it to his parents and one's parents reporting it to the police. Or so the salacious details reported in the local papers. Just because I cannot easily find this story on the Internet from 1970 or so, it does not mean that the Internet has been purged and or no longer exists. Merely that certain editions of the same newspapers were no doubt not imaged etc. There might also be a gag order still in place, privacy and all that etc.

The incident I remember because first period senior year was Physics and the Physics teacher was our high school's basketball coach, an unmarried young (draft deferred) male lay teacher. I remember his face being beet red in class and all day long when I saw him passing by his homeroom classroom and saw him coming out of the faculty dining room off the student's cafeteria. I am guessing his flushed face was the reaction to stares all day from students and faculty and he being somehow representative or connected to the scandalous story from our brother high school. To see the world differently or to be seen differently - oh what a treat. 

But who did the vetting when Joe McFadden entered St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Overbrook, Philadelphia btw?

Wink. Nod. ?

Philly High School Possibly Named in Tribute to Father Coughlin and His Approval of German Actions at Kristallnacht

I had to wonder when I randomly ran into this looking at some other matter, what happened to the local girl's high school in Philly, when its name got changed from its original designation of "Northeast Catholic High School for Girls" to "Little Flower High School". Something and things along the timeline from October 1938 when building permits were issued in the original designated name to dedication on August 27th 1939, five days before the invasion of Poland and the beginning of war in Europe.

There was already in place a tradition of West Catholic High for Boys first followed by West Catholic High for Girls. Only four blocks apart near University City in west Philly.

Little Flower as the compliment female school to Northeast Catholic High School for Boys was three miles apart. (The Northeast still the edge of the burbs and farms in pre-War Philadelphia County). 

The working name on Little Flower may have been N.E.C.H. for girls but looking at the timeline I have to wonder about Dennis Dougherty and his still standing fatwa on the Ethnic Group the "ran Hollywood" still in place forbidding all Catholics in the AD of Philly from attending the cinema which he never rescinded. (Thank the Catholic Gawd that the good cardinal had a movie projection setup to view Hollywood movies in private in his 45-61 room (depending on estimates) mansion of his quaint home base surrounded by 10 acres on City Line Ave. in Philly. )

October the building permits:

And then Kristallnacht in November 9-10 and America's most powerful media voice of Father Charles Coughlin getting more racist to up his ratings the closer Europe crept toward War.

For years, Coughlin had publicly derided “international bankers,” a phrase that most of his listeners understood to mean Jewish bankers. In the days and weeks after Kristallnacht, Coughlin defended the state-sponsored violence of the Nazi regime, arguing that Kristallnacht was justified as retaliation for Jewish persecution of Christians. He explained to his listeners on November 20, 1938 that the “communistic government of Russia,” “the Lenins and Trotskys…atheistic Jews and Gentiles” had murdered more than 20 million Christians and had stolen “40 billion [dollars]…of Christian property.”
In a series of articles published in Social Justice during 1938, Coughlin lambasted “Jewish” financiers and their control over world politics, culminating with a story recounting his own version of the infamous 20th Century forgery, the so-called Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which purported to be minutes of meetings of Jewish leaders as they plotted to take over the world.

As Europe crept toward War. 

Philadelphia Inquirer 28 Aug 1939
On same page as LF dedication photo below.

Following two major radio stations in NYC, dropping Coughlin's broadcasts after his praise of Kristallnacht, followed by protests making the national papers of pro-Coughlin supporters outside NY radio staions, somewhere in that timeline between beginning of Construction of Northeast Catholic High School for Girls in October 1938 and the Dedication of Little Flower High School for Girls in August 1939, Cardinal Dougherty did a name change on the high school, perhaps out of sympathetic views shared with the American Papal Nuncio Cicognani and Father Charles Coughlin the head of the Radio League of the Little Flower, and his shrine in Michigan to Saint Therese of Lisieux, a recently canonized 24 year old ? "Doctor of the Church". 

Coincidence or devotion.
Wikipedia Commons

Philadelphia Inquirer 28 Aug 1939

It is possible that Cardinal Dougherty was indeed devoted to the worship of the Little Flower saint but more likely he had to hedge a bet or a loan to Coughlin to build his cash cow shrine in Michigan, with the radio transmissions drying up with contributions. Better to have a local Wink. Nod. Michigan shrine reminder in Philly to back up offshore tax free loans to Royal Oak?

Zexuality or Xezuality - the Non-Neural Labels for the New Global Culture - No NonBin Anymore?

An epiphany after a visit form the middle world culture, mid-earth culture, (middle-earth? - the term, no already taken?) origin and end myth of two messengers (angels?) interrogating you in temp tinsel fake paradise waiting for the final final death and or judgment at the hands of the infamous by now mean little desert god of the neanderthal monosexual monotheists - an electric incandescent light bulb and not any of these vegan strength pussy non-incandescent bulbs, GOES ON!

Then when you are born into an atmospheric toxic mess caused by at least a hundred atomic surface explosions in some sort of mad pentagon and kremlin / frankenstein experiment and they wonder why people these days cannot identify what the old Roman Army wax tablet recorder wants in a sex identity when that was all that was needed or understood in the day was a naked exposure of dong of non-dong in a mound of in between the legs friction/moisture absorbing hair.

That Genderqueer and Non-binary does not do anything for me in terms of understanding a third sex "cover" that the RC church has operated under for over a thousand years under the celibacy cover, reinforced by the sacred tradition BS seal of approval by doctors in air and or "divinity".

That the breakdown of civilisation from the old civization into a new global culture needs suddenly since August 1945 a million different ways to look at again and reclassify everything since the inception of the personal robotic computer into boxes on the new Corporate Global Spreadsheet (bow your heads), rumored to have been invented of 45's alma mater @Penn. 

And while the dirty nester's wearing purple and red in the vatican are still fighting to be top dong in the religion game scam left over from the roman empire, it is these dirty nesters, hoarders, in an empty nest, since so many have left that halcyon nest of protection since v2, hoarders of dirty secrets from a thousand years of third sex politics has spilled into world like the old proverbial pandora's box and every individual has to decide for themselves who is who and what is what and sexuality as "dong" or "non-dong" is like so cave man (person). Like yeah.

Child Abuse, As Opposed to Being Gay, Not Contrary to Natural Law - Dah Late Bishop McFadden of Harrisburg Pa. - "The Evil That Men Do Lives After Them"

May 9, 2013 t.c.c.

Bishop McFadden of Harrisburg Drops Dead – His Legacy in Philadelphia Child Abuse Glory Hole Days Played Down in Eulogy – Liked Basketball – No Mention of Children

Bishop McFadden of Harrisburg dropped dead on May 2 at a Pennsylvania Bishop’s Convention / Conference.

They brought in the green temporary bishop of Allentown John Oliver Barres to give a flowery eulogy to a monster that appears to have been there when as personal secretary to Cardinal Krol, cases of child abuse in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia got filed away rather than be addressed.

Krol with his Polish friend in the Vatican that owed his papacy to king maker Krol would cover up for him same as for Marcial Maciel. What are friends for if not to help cover up corporate mismanagement and or downright evil?

“It was during McFadden's service as a secretary to Cardinal Krol that Krol is believed to have excused and enabled the sexual abuse of hundreds of children within the Philadelphia Archdiocese.” (Wikipedia)

I must say that officiating at his funeral was Archbishop Chaput who I think was wise not to deliver the eulogy and or did not want to touch the Krol-Belivaqua-Rigali child abuse regimes/era toxic waste site in the form of the corpse of Bishop McFadden.

Allentown Diocese Bishop John Barres today recalled Harrisburg Bishop Joseph P. McFadden's gentle nature and love of basketball as Barres delivered the homily at McFadden's funeral Mass…

…Joseph McFadden may have been a kind and gentle priest and bishop, but he always played to win,” said Barres…
And his way to win as a priest and bishop with a rich interior life and a vibrant missionary spirit was a nonstop full court press for the glory of God and the salvation of souls,”…

(Sniff. Sniff. Not a dry eye in the house.)

Bishop McFadden as monsignor preceded Monsignor Bill Lynn as pastor of St. Joseph’s “Rich Bastards” parish in Downingtown, Pa.

Bishop McFadden as auxiliary bishop of Philadelphia was also instrumental in the closing of the two best High Schools in the racially mixed city, Northeast Catholic and Cardinal Dougherty in Philadelphia owing to the changing minority demographics within the city limits. His vision of the burbs only for new RC high schools in Philly I also think belongs to McFadden as part of his legacy.

Thanks to “Dave” for the Allentown link.

RIP Bishop McFadden. (I don’t really mean it. Just a press statement of sorts on the topic of your funeral like the so many press releases you signed off on in your lifetime. lol)

Joe McFadden true legacy comes from District Attorney Seth Williams at the conclusion of the Monsignor Lynn trial:

"Many in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Philadelphia hierarchy had dirty hands. They failed to realize that the church is its people."

Who Truly Won in the Papal Elections of 1978 - the CIA or the KGB?

Downtown Philadelphia Street Corner Billboards 1971 *

Putting aside some truly false and or misleading family oral history about a very distant cousin and the Archbishopric chair in Philadelphia, I have to reconsider making some real and or (my?) imaginary cross referencing of facts "sacred" and or profane "secular".

Two glaring facts stick out in my mind in the last two years, with consideration of the long term plannings of the RC church and the Czar's Private Secret Police, the KGB. Isn't it a marvel how institutional or ganizations like the RC church and or the Czar's gatekeeping Bodyguards go on and on like a law of physics, once set in motion.

And since all politics and religion are LOCAL, let me mention two things.

The official PR line of a snake like Donald Trump that he took a million dollar loan from daddy and starting flipping trash properties in Philly while a student at Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania is total bullshit.

The extra truth that many liars throw into the story, any story, is that Donald's name is not on any Philly deeds or records is because he did not want to make the prices go up. A real flipper would want the name thing to go around, to start a trend, and then have other real estate investors get on a gentrification Ponzi scheme of sorts and the first in to cash out as the later investors come along pay much more.

Like I say, I lay claim to it, that Trump paid back daddy with profits from money laundering probably first with the Philly mob, the Angelo Bruno crowd, and very familiar with the then Police Chief and later Mayor Frank Rizzo back then in 1967. And then when Donald got in over his head, like he does on every thing he does, he found a friendly front for the KGB and or they found him is more accurate and the M.O. of Trump INC was established with the brilliant Wharton Student Trump and the gentlemenly "Cs" (never really earned in any way shape or form) of an I-V school @Penn, and an "ivy league school" being in folk or origin myth being one of seven or eight American college institutions in existence before the American Revolution and or break with British Rule.

So getting back to Vatican murder and backstabbing and the usual shit thereabouts in Rome, I always wondered why one of my distant cousins, as a popular Irish American auxiliary bishop of Philadelphia did not succeed Cardinal O'Hara upon his death. ???

And then all of a sudden, the Polish Catholic minority in Philly, and not the Irish majority of RCs takes front stage with an auxiliary bishop from Cleveland (Cleveland !?) taking over the archbishop's chair in Philly.

Joe McShea did not have to bear any or much  embarrassment as a very popular auxiliary bishop in Philly, who delivered the eulogy at (Saint) Mother Katherine Drexel's funeral, and serve the new Pollack archbishop by getting an almost instant consolation prize of five northern counties (mostly coal country) of the Philly archdiocese in "upstate" Pennsylvania, by being named First bishop of the newly created Diocese of Allentown Pennsylvania. Or the grand duchy of Allentown as a reward to Joe from his once time boss, Papal Nuncio to the United States for 25 years, 1933-1959.

Amleto Giovanni Cicognani (24 February 1883 – 17 December 1973)

And also a good friend of Amleto's older brother Gaetano to whom Joe McShea as a seminarian in Rome would nightly read in private to the poorly sighted Gaetano in his papal apartments, or so the might be faulty family oral history goes. (in that family history, the older brother was much older, not two years older, and almost legally blind and could no longer read lengthy dogmatic documents without assistance etc.)

Gaetano Cicognani (26 November 1881 – 5 February 1962)

No problem for Secretary of State Amleto Cicognani of the Vatican to carve out a new diocese in Pennsylvania and move a few chess pieces around the American political landscape like auxiliary bishop John Krol into Archbishop John Krol of Philadelphia.

All well and good, and I have written about John Krol being one of the foremost starters of the American Culture War about Birth Control and Abortion after Humanae Vitae, RC encyclical regarding Command State Economy control over the reproductive product of the female part of the male / female unit of the species aka Man.

I say all this to condense with what I have stated many times and in many ways over the years here on my blogs, about how Archbishop John Krol wanted to be the first American pope and how he relentlessly campaigned years after year and took trips to third world countries where First Pennsylvania Bank and the infamous John Bunting was loaning money to the third world for fees and bonuses and no longer making little mortgages and little to moderate to large size business loans in Philadelphia. The money was in the fees and bonuses and the State Department implied no doubt in private off the book meetings with Bunting that the U.S. Government would never let John or First Pennsylvania go under giving loans that would never, could never be repaid from countries the U.S. Government had once looked kindly upon in the hopes of thwarting the spread of godless and capitalist-less belief systems. 

Problem with Bunting was that he was not I-V league. A graduate of local Temple. He actually had commuted to college. No network of I-V buddies at State or Treasury to help a guy out when the real bills came due at his Philly bank, one of the oldest in the country btw. 

And I have written how Archbishop Krol was bankrolled on his trips to Asia, and Africa, and making substantial in those days contributions of like 50k to start RC hospitals and RC colleges and RC seminaries in these very poor, poor nations. And in the hopes of swaying some local Asian and or African Cardinal to vote for him as pope once Paul VI died. etc. 

That Krol was bankrolled by a Polish American Multimillionaire and businessman John Piszek, originally from Chicago and later Philadelphia who was a founder of Mrs. Paul's Frozen Seafood, a business started btw while on strike to make some off the books cash selling crab cakes at local bars in Philly on weekends. And the business took off but they named the business after his partner Mr. Paul because it was an Anglo sounding name and not Polish which was thought not to be a good PR name to sell frozen seafood with. Piszek with the millions rolling in starting in the 1950s after he bought out Mr. Paul, his partner, was forever bitter that his name, an immigrant name, was not good enough to make it big in American business. He compensated and began to give money away to all causes Polish, locally and abroad. Archbishop Krol and getting him as the first Polish American Pope to be elected and which is why I speculate that the Papal Nuncio saw some merit in giving Krol the first Archbishop's seat that became available and that usually got a red hat with it eventually, was a logical thing, and after much cash no doubt got funneled into Polish RC church projects and charities in Poland behind the Iron Curtain. etc.

And then with all the cash rolling into the Vatican for projects in Poland, they gave Amleto Cicognani a dispensation to become Cardinal, it not being allowed under the rules that sent the RC into a tailspin in the Reformation, because his brother was already a Cardinal. Brother, Nephew, what was the difference in giving power to your crony relatives. And Amleto becomes Secretary of State of the Vatican in 1961.

I have often wondered considering the almost miraculous, with no mortal help, in the rise of auxiliary Bishop John Krol to become a contender in the 1978 papal elections, if he had the dream on his own or if somebody had whispered in his ear the dream that he could one day become the first Polish American Pope with a little help from his friends like John Piszek and Amleto Cicognani. Wink. Nod.

Which makesme wonder, with cash coming into Poland from the west via the Vatican etc. how Karol Wojtyla also may have gotten the idea that he too could become the first Polish Polish Pope with a little help from his friends. While the Vatican made its members pray every Sunday after mass for the conversion of Russia to Christianity, the real big chuck of RC R/E the Vatican would like to start with in that conversion to the Russians from Communism back into Orthodox back into Roman Christians, that the Catholic prize of Poland was possible but maybe the money of Mrs. Paul's fish sticks was not enough and maybe other sources of funds would have to be found to create networks to revive and or sustain unions that would likely first be the force to make any real changes in a Worker's State like Poland. 

And I have to wonder if the former Papal Nuncio to the United States 1933-1959 had made any worthwhile secular contacts in Washington DC over the years like at the State Department and or the dare I say it - the CIA.

That between the puppet master Amleto Cicognani in the west and the east whispering temptation into the ears of gullible Polish clerics, that maybe the long term planning of the CIA was becoming a match for the old long term planning of the Czar's secret police aka the KGB.

Wojtyla was already a player with the KGB, he could play ball and not threaten the state and the state let him play dressed up cleric for some of the masses and proclaim a free state for all the workers and their perhaps private beliefs. Whatever. 

I have often wondered about Wojtyla's resume about being associated with the resistance during WWII and in occupied slave state Poland and his survival as a worker in a stone quarry etc. Anybody can put anything on a resume. Like flipping houses in Philly on the QT and anonymously is just as good as "Freedom Fighter" on the PR releases after the Polish American Cardinal relinquished his block of Pope Votes to the Polish Polish Cardinal in 1978 after the mysterious death of the last Italian Italian pope. And anybody can flip themselves while being played as a pawn in Global Political Chess - flip as in double agents and or triple agents of the KGB etc. - comrades and brothers in Christ?

And the collateral damage, messes to be cleaned up by the masses caused from players, past their prime and also dead, still hanging around from those 1960s - 1970s games of chess here forty and fifty years later.

Putin Making Progress into Grinding Old Russians into Woof Woof Dog Food to Feed Trump's Pet Dogs

No doubt fresh from secret Helsinki circle jerk talks of Trump and Putin, and Trump telling Putin to raise the retirement age for old people in Russia in order to steal more of the Russian national treasury.  Putin reportedly worth 100 billion dollars now can achieve his goal toward a trillion dollar individual wealth. * 

*(Trump about to brand his Russian made dog food?)

Just take it out of the hides of your people and raise the retirement age for women from 55 to 63 and men from 60 to 65 for a state sponsored retirement check. The Wharton Global Spreadsheet at work and the American Model of retirement in weak economies where there are no fit jobs for human beings past the age of 45 in America and or Russia and or the so called civilized world. 

Once your hormones fade with age, so does the attractiveness of your ability to perform like circus dogs for your CEO employers making their tens of millions in bonuses screwing little people out of pensions and decent hourly wages etc. 

Soylent Green is perhaps too old a movie to illustrate what to do with useless old people. 

My all time favorite below as a microcosm now to illustrate Trump's and now Putin's tiny little ruling entourage bubble worlds where what you know as a crony does not matter as much as who you blow in order to survive etc. Betsy D etc. Whatever.

Trump has no pets. Something that no one ever dares write about it. Your won't hear anything here form me. - and - Considering the photos of his two oldest boys in their thirties with guns and African road kill testosterone proving delayed stunted adolescent bullshit etc, not even a pet cat. Meow!p

Welcome to Woop Woop, a Hollywood gem of a hidden classic 

is about what to do when you are a con man stranded in the middle of nowhere, Woop Woop Australia for example, except playing old Oscar and Hammerstein movies and making communally produced Woof Woof dog food out of road kill kangaroos. Great movie stuff on many symbolic and metaphoric levels of the modern reality of people left behind from the global anti-human spreadsheet etc.

Thousands of people have taken part in protests in cities across Russia to express their anger at government proposals to raise the pension age.
Demonstrators in the capital, Moscow, carried banners reading: "We want to live on our pensions, not die at work."
The government says it wants to raise the pension age from 60 to 65 for men, and from 55 to 63 for women, to help cope with a shrinking workforce.
But unions warn many people will not live long enough to claim a pension.
Some 12,000 people took to the streets of Moscow to protest at the controversial plans.
